Principal Investigator
Research Area:
Behavior and performance
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

For relaxing or “unwinding” in limited spaces in zero gravity, the investigators explored the relationships between human beings and spaces in microgravity by analyzing how astronauts converse and relax in space. Through this study, the investigators looked for conditions that promote relaxed living, utilizing the entirety of a limited space, in microgravity, by exploring how peoples' sense of space in the International Space Station (ISS) and on the ground differ.
